Célkitűzés: A szubjektív jól-lét vizsgálata igen hasznos mutatója lehet a társadalomra jellemző életminőségnek. Az élettel való elégedettség az átfogó, szubjektív jól-létnek az értékelésére vonatkozik. Vizsgálatunkban arra törekedtünk, hogy ezt az érdekes kérdést Magyarországon a magyar és izraeli orvostanhallgatók körében vizsgáljuk meg. Korábbi felmérések azt mutatták, hogy Izraelben magasabb az élettel való elégedettség, mint Magyarországon. Módszerek: Az Élettel való elégedettség skála (Satisfaction with Life Scale) segítségével mértük, hogy az izraeli és a magyar orvostanhallgatók összességében mennyire elégedettek az életükkel; 300 orvostanhallgató töltötte ki ezt a kérdőívet, 150 magyar (75 nő és 75 férfi) és 150 izraeli (75 nő és 75 férfi). Az izraeli hallgatók átlagéletkora 24,98 (SD = 3,10) év volt, a magyar hallgatók átlagéletkora 20,89 (SD = 2,97). Eredmények: Eredményeink alátámasztják a már korábban végzett vizsgálatok eredményeit. Az izraeli orvostanhallgatóknál magasabb volt az élettel való elégedettség, mint a magyar mintánál. Az izraeli orvostanhallgató nők elégedettebbnek bizonyultak az életükkel, mint az izraeli orvostanhallgató férfiak. A magyar mintában nem találtunk nemi különbségeket az élettel való elégedettség tekintetében.
